Women's Academy Roundup

Women's Academy Roundup

The opening weekend for our Women’s Academy couldn’t have gone much better. Two games, two wins, two clean sheets and eight goals scored in two Munster Derby matches against Cobh Ramblers, WU17 on Saturday and WU19 on Sunday.

It was two debutants who got on the scoresheet in Saturday’s WU17 game and manager Craig Robinson was happy with the performance, while knowing there’s even more to come from his squad.  “Happy to get off to a positive start with the three points, three good goals and a clean sheet and we got all nineteen players involved also with game minutes, especially all those girls making their Cork City debuts” said Craig “Two of those debutants got on the scoresheet, two goal for Kate (Mulcahy) which is great to get a strikers confidence going from the start and a great goal from Julia (Farinha) off the bench, showing that we have great options in the squad, whoever starts.”

It’s still a development league and Craig knows that it’s the first hurdle in a long journey “I think we all agreed after the game, players and coaches, that the performance could have been better, some nerves but back into training to improve on those areas we felt could have been better and get ready for CK United away next weekend.”

Also, best of luck from all at the club to Amy Dalton, our keeper, who got injured on Saturday, we wish her a speedy recovery.”

Sunday’s WU19 game saw City cruise to a 5-0 win with goals from Grace Flanagan, Jaydine Seward, Zoe Finnerty, Heidi O’Sullivan and Christina Dring and Manager Trish Fennelly Hunt was really happy with the start. “Obviously, it was a good positive start, we played some very good football, still there are some little bits and pieces we want to fine tune but the girls went out there well prepared, they had worked really hard this week building up to the game and followed the game plan perfectly and got the result we had worked for all week.”

“We worked very well as a team with some lovely passages of play, Five goals, and just very happy with the performance and the effort put in by all the girls. We just want to bring that positivity into training this week and onto the next game.”
